Total eclipse

otal eclipse. I was happy to be in the path of the total eclipse on August 21st 2017. My friend Quin of Sermons of Stone Photography organized a gathering in the Tetons and had claimed a big campsite for his friends and family. Only problem was a 3 mile hike, of which 1 mile steep up. We nevertheless reached the top of the Grand View overlook in time and with some dozen other folks we were in awe as the moon and sun slowly moved in each other's path. At the moment of the total eclipse everyone fell silent. It was cold, some animal sounds around us, and in a hurry I tried to snap some shots. This was harder than I had imagined. It went all by so fast, and before I realized it, the sun was warming us all again. We waited a bit longer and then some of us went down already. The hike down was way easier. Everyone was greatly impressed and it was an event I wouldn't have want to have missed.
